Some people have received letters about the installation of these cameras to estimate a vehicle's weight, which 'cross-reference details with the DVLA to issue penalty charge notices to overweight HGVs. Drivers will be made aware of the weight restrictions by advanced warning and envorcement signs in the area'. This sounds like excellent news for reducing congestion and pollution in the neighbourhood.
The letters are rather curious - they come from 'Haringey Labour', with the Labour Party logo, rather than from Haringey Council, and our local councillors knew nothing about it, as we learned at the Palace Gates Residents' Association AGM. It is also strange that the letter is undated, and no date is given for the installation of the cameras. Nothing would happen until the new year anyway, with election purdah, but sounds like it would be a great measure to campaign for, if it doesn't happen by other means!
